Something has got to be pretty interesting to convince me to delay sleep, and statistics
can often be that thing. Again with minty Shaun-Inman-flavoured news, my site is now sporting
spinkee new Mint statistics logging.
All the hype pointed to a release date of
which left me rather flatfooted when it was released early, just minutes before I was planning to get an early night's sleep.
Anyhow, heres a preview of my first ever Mint-tracked site hit (mysql, depressingly):
The interface really is lovely, although I'm a little tentative in proclaiming
the wonders of Mint, the reasons for which can await a post at a later date when I am more awake.
The installation gave me a few troubles, from quickly scouring the code trying to hunt down my problem,
I realised that I needed the
ALTER priviledge set up for my SQL user to install ‘Pepper’
(modules). There is currently no feedback on problems like this, it repeatedly told me it was installing fine.
The only other problem was the slightly jarring feeling when you first load up the stats, the default pepper was
unloaded, causing slight worry.
Finally though, I get to return to beautiful sleep. Writing Pepper will have to wait.
Update: There are few Mint-inspired icons available at http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/mint/
